- Yellow / Orange: The certificate is valid and means that the holder has undergone a PCR or rapid antigen test (rapid test) with a negative result.

- Red: The certificate is invalid.

It is emphasized that the application was designed in compliance with all the provisions for the protection of personal data, shows only the name and date of birth of the holder and does not store the personal data of the citizen or the history of checks.
